Bye-bye, mascara marks!
When applying Anastasia mascara, we all fear the dreaded moment when the mascara ends up on your eyelid! Say bye-bye to mascara marks by shielding your eyes with a spoon. Yes, that’s right! You can shield your eyes from mascara by gently placing a regular spoon on the eyelid as you beautify your lashes.
Set your lippy the right way
Avoid sloppy, melting lipstick with this simple trick. Once you’ve applied a swipe or two of lipstick, place a tissue over your lips! On top of this tissue, blot some translucent powder. The translucent powder filters through the tissue paper to set your lips for the long haul without leaving a powdery or dry film behind.
What do eyeshadow and petroleum jelly make? A lippy!
Consider this if you don’t have lipstick to hand but a little something else in your makeup kit. Eyeshadow and petroleum jelly make a beautiful lip balm that adds a soft flush of colour to the lips! Mix a little bit of eyeshadow pigment and petroleum jelly on your hand and apply.
The right products will make all the difference in your makeup experience and application. But, as ever, a little trick here and there can change the game for you! Women often use Seint Eyeshadow products to get beautiful makeup for all occasions. This eyeshadow brand is famous among women as it offers high-quality products that are long-lasting and easy to apply. Moreover, this offers various shades of eyeshadows so you can choose the perfect one according to your skin tone and outfit.
Find your contour with a brush handle
The contour of the face can be hard to find. A brush handle settles in the hollows of your cheeks, leaving you the perfect path to place your contour! Choose a smooth, pigmented contour palette from Iconic London to make this hack work.
Talking about contour…use a brow pencil!
So, you know how to place your contour, but what if you’re without a palette in a time of need? You heard us right; eyebrow pencils can be used for contour in a pinch! Melt them down with a little lick of fire, and smudge the brow pencil across the contour points of the face – making sure to blend well as you go! – and you’re set.
Concealer placement is everything
If you want to achieve creaseless concealer, where you place your concealer is everything! Gone are the days of extreme concealer under the eyes. Instead, consider dabbing a little concealer in the inner and outer corners of the eye – this placement not only lifts and brightens the face but ensures creases borne from heavy makeup don’t form under the eye.
Try the spoolie and soap combo
Eyebrow spoolies are an invaluable tool for any makeup kit, with their firm bristles and straightforward application! Combine a spoolie with a little soap to fix your eyebrows into an attractive shape and set them in place. Soap goes far in making sure your eyebrows look good for the whole day!
Plump up your mascara with powder
Some of us love a thick, bold application of mascara. But this can be hard to achieve with just one product! Consider applying loose powder to your lashes before a wave of your mascara wand. The mascara will stick to the powder on your lashes for a darker, thicker and more lasting finish.
Chop up your falsies
Chopping up your falsies can add some drama to your makeup look. By chopping up your false lashes and leaving the outer piece, you can curl and add the outer piece to your natural lashes for a lifted cat-eye appearance.
Try powder before foundation
Although this seems to go against every rule of makeup in the book, give it a try! Powdering your face before foundation ensures your face has no oil to disrupt the finish and texture of your foundation and extends the lifespan of your look.
